While visiting for a hockey tournament, my son and I enjoyed lunch at Rocky River Cafe. My son ordered a pasta dish with mushrooms, and I ordered the slow cooked ribs special with a beet and goat cheese salad (photos of my meals included). We...More

Missed this place on other visits, our loss. SIRI listed it as the best place to eat in Perth and I would have to agree. Small & quaint in a former older home (as per Perth), with a personable host and friendly staff. Hard to...More

Had to wait a little bit to be seated on a Sunday morning, but that’s usually a good sign, right? Varied menu, enough variety I think to suit most peope for a casual lunch/brunch type place. My Club Sandwich was good, nice to have been...More

I ordered the perogi sandwich and it was delicious. The sides were great as well. However if you like good coffee this is not the place to have it. Very bitter. The server told us it was Maxwell House. Why a restaurant would have top...More

The outside if the property does not do justice to this restaurant. The physical presence is minimalist, to be sure, but what is really outstanding is the product served. I had the 'soup of the day' and found it to be both out of the...More

The Rocky River may accommodate a large group; however, you may also try the Fiddleheads or Maximilian restaurants. The other option would be the Best Western hotel, just next door, that can organize private parties.

I believe that shouldn't be a problem. They have a nice outside area and one of the inside rooms that we had lunch in should be able to hold 20 people. Food is very good - enjoy.
